Our Something Extra Hvar City Tour

Instead of a rushed 40 minute gallop through Hvar's Old Town,our something extra tour takes the time to show your group what makes this marvelous town so fascinating. Discover the historical legacy of Hvar step by step and listen to the stories of the town's citadel, its medieval walls, the monasteries and palaces. Visit the Benedictine nunnery, a place where nuns still live in a secluded convent and whose existence is only visible to the public through their handmade lace - works of art so unique they are on the UNESCIO list of cultural treasures. As we stroll through Hvar's picturesque streets you'll come to know centuries of Dalmatian architecture. And what better way to end our tour with a splendid espresso at Café Pjaca in the town square. It's all part of our something extra tour that your group is sure to enjoy!

Program description: Our half day tour starts with a car transfer to Hvar’s Fortica Castle, which is the best place for the most amazing view of the entire city and island archipelago. After learning more about the castle and its history we’ll begin our gentle stroll down to the city center through lush pine woods until we reach old part of the town called Groda. At Groda we will stop at Benedictine Nun’s museum where they will see their signature works of art: Agava pattern laces, which last year became UNESCO protected. Afterwards we will discover the city square, Arsenal Theatre, cathedral and finish our tour with espresso at Cafe Piazza.
